California Newsreel will be distributing a new feature film from
(WHEN THE STARS MEET THE SEA) by Raymond Rajaonarivelo.
It is a mystical and highly symbolic film, that among other things says
that a child born during a solar eclipse is cursed to have diabolical
powers and should be killed.

We are looking for a scholar of Malagasy culture and folklore who would
be willing to watch the film on tape and whom we can question about the
significance of some of the events in the film. Thank you.
